Come on all the Krafty girls, its challenge day at MAWTT

Good Morning blog friends

Don't know what its like where you are but the weather is fab here in the north.  The sun is shining, the birds are singing - this is the third day in a row that its felt like summer, its been a real treat rambling over the fields with my dog, it would be nice to think it was going to last!

Todays challenge at Moving  Along WithTheTimes has been set by our 
Krafty teamie Pammi
so naturally she chose the theme

  Lets Get Krafty!

What that means is we want to see something with Kraft card so go on - Get Krafty!

My card for today is a lovely image from the seletion that the DT girls were given to playwith by our sponsors 
Digi Darla Designs
who are providing a prize of 5 images of the winners choice

 - isn't she just so sweet

I love images that have beautifully shaped dresses like this one where you can really get to work on the folds and frills and red is my favourite colour to do that. I was really pleased with the dress when I finished which is more than I can say for the hair!  I don't know if its because she hasn't got much!! but I couldn't get it the way I saw it in my mind and ended up going too far.  Never mind you win some -you lose some. I sort of rescued it a bit in the end but you what its like when its not the way you want it to be its never going to be right!

This is what I did....
